Sounds like a great ride, guys! Sorry we couldn't joined (had the Diablo plan for a couple of weeks now). We had a great ride to Diablo- right about 60 miles RT and 4800 feet of climbing. The weather was perfect and Richard and I took turns dueling a charming guy visiting from Italy (riding a Colnago, of course). Each time we passed him, he would make a valiant charge to jump in front of us, but we left him behind for good near the ranger station. Or so we thought! He eventually caught me on the wall, where we charged up together and finished with a gentlemen's tie. I told him about BikeForums and he is looking forward to riding with us when he comes back in February! Based on his interests, I think he and Pete would be fast friends!
